Over the years I have seen many cemeteries up close or in passing. This one is one of a kind. There are fresh cut flowers everywhere and it is simply beautiful. This is a fascinating and historical old location and landmark.

This was a site that one member of our group wanted to visit. We strolled around the cemetary, just as a service was concluding in the chapel. We did walk into the chapel following the service, but didn't stay because we felt like we were...More

A lovely respectful location for a final rest. Durer's grave is discretely marked if you pay attention, I did not. I spent too much time looking when there were markers pointing the way. I was able to enjoy the experence, wandering quietly, contemplating how I...More

How can one say a cemetery is beautiful, but this one is really lovely. Roses were in abundance on top of the graves and it was a very special visit. I would highly recommend spending time in here and reflecting on the past.

The place is very quite and beautiful. It has a personal touch and you have to see how different people see their lost ones. There are a lot of flowers thrown everywhere. And there are a lot of sensational words on each stone.

Unlike any other cemetery, this is not only best known, and most beautiful in Nuremberg, it is outstanding with beautiful flowers on top of stone grave stones. It's worth seeing, if you can spare a little time from your city tours

If you're in the area or even if you're not this is well worth a look. It's free to walk in and there are a few pretty buildings and flowers everywhere. They have gardeners watering the flowers left on the graves and I guess adding...More

I love visiting old cemetaries and this one reminds me of the ones I've seen in New Orleans but even older. It's a short walk along the river and one turn up a street. It's peaceful and the chapel inside the cemetary was beautiful. I...More

Walking through this cemetery you will see very old headstones- some ornate and others relatively simple- along with some newer ones. It is very peaceful and people lovingly place flowers and mementos on the graves. There is a beautiful small church at the center of...More
